I am so pleased that the magazine supports independent design as much as they do, it is very encouraging to all who operate a small business out there. I remember pre-Domino, it was rare that you’d find indie design featured in a popular shelter magazine. It is easy to forget how America was before say, 2005 when the great indie boom really started to hit on a national level and now a few years later small time design sits with the big names in stores and magazines. This is a very huge accomplishment, something to be proud of. I heard that at the National Stationery Show this year, small companies sat in the same section as the large ones like American Greetings, no longer in their own section. The huge growth and popularity of small business in our country proves how a passionate group who desire change can make it happen if they are consistent and push through the initial rejection. It doesn’t just happen in the movies. These small business owners found a way to get themselves out there. This movement we’re seeing is nothing short of amazing, confirmation that if you can see it you can be it.
